When adding my business to Google Maps, I don't want a new Google+ page!

I am trying to add my business to Google Maps. However when adding, it will automatically create a Google+ page. 
I would like to keep the Google+ page I have already. How do I NOT create the new one?
 
Well..if I have to have a new one, kindly let me know how to merge the Google+ pages.
I know that Google stopped supporting Google+ account merging so I've downloaded the data using Google Takeout.
Provide me the steps to re-upload it on the new Google+ page!
 
Thank you so much in advance!!

Hi Teles

Can you provide a link to the Google+ page you already have please?

It is not always possible to merge Google+ pages but we'll need the link to confirm that.

@Teles K aka @William S

 

you provided URL seems about a brand page.

Since you are going to add your bsuiness to GMaps (means creating a localGoogleMyBusiness listing) you have to decide yourself:

1# to live with an additional local GoogleMyBusiness page

or

2# to remove your brand page creating a local listing 

or

3# connecting your bandpage to your GoogleMyBusiness listing
